Touch of Power (Healer 1) - Maria V. Snyder

The Book
Release Date: 20 December 2011


Avry’s power to heal the sick should earn her respect in the plague-torn land of Kazan. Instead she is feared. Her kind are blamed for the horrifying disease that has taken hold of the nation. When Avry uses her forbidden magic to save a dying child, she faces the guillotine. Until a dark, mysterious man rescues her from her prison cell. His people need Avry’s magic to save their dying prince. The very prince who first unleashed the plague on Kazan.

Saving the prince is certain to kill Avry – yet she already faces a violent death. Now she must choose – use her healing touch to show the ultimate mercy or die a martyr to a lost cause?

My Opinion  5 STARS

The writer takes you into another world and the story is excellent. With. The narration you really feel like you are there with the characters and really experiencing it with them. 

The story holds many twists and turns so you are never quite sure how the book is going to turn out which is a blessing. I don't actually like figuring whats going to happen, it sort of ruins the story.

Anyway Avry is a strong, determined female character and all the supporting roles are excellent. I love Kerrick but found him a little too closed off. His change of feelings was more than a little surprising, but felt right.

I sooooo cannot wait for the next book!!!
